Found a big upgrade for my wand last night, too. +2300 dps just from that one item. I might have paid around 20, gold (?). I can't remember, but it was relatively cheap for such a big boost in dps. Now, my wizard is up to around 8290 damage.
The AH finally stopped lagging and I received the "entry level" L60 wand (~600 dps) that I bought for ~70k gold. That price isn't too bad, I think. 1000+ dps weapons are 500k gold and above.
I need to be diligent in selling my stuff on the AH.

game is fun and great, im really really getting over the fact that when a sword drops for my barb and even for my gf's DH and it has intl on it for +100. come the Fug on. all my drops last night in hell were this. all my good items have come from when my brother is gaming on his wiz. i feel like the farming is not worth it as of right now cause im farming nothing of worth wild for myself. granted im not in inferno cause hell is whooping my A up and down the acts, and i dont avoid any packs of NM mobs or champions. usually have about 6 plus deaths per fight with them.
arcane, extra heallth, and horde is brutal. now i know my gear is low level NM i would say so i can get past the regualr Hell mobs and just ground and pound. usually have to kite and i HATE to kite with a strength barb class.
hopefully i can get some better gear over the weekend farming act 1 of HELL and some of act 2 HELL. will see how it goes.

58wd joined my game an I noticed he was utterly decimating everything. Looked at his weapon, level 60, 800~ dps 2 hander that had a -17 level requirement on it. Being able to use an 800 dps weapon at level 43 is a little op.
That's broken. I've seen -5 and stuff like that, but -17? Damn...
Anyway, at least for now, half the game is about farming gold via quests and selling the loot and the other half is about farming the AH. Oh, and there's the other half about getting through the more difficult levels. That's 3 halves. Yeah...
Why do I do this? Strangely enough, I'm addicted.

Anyone else having their current quest set back one or two? Since yesterday every time I have left and rejoined a game my current quest has been changed to the previous one. I've had to kill Belial twice, and Izual twice because of this. It also really sucks with long quests.
i think it's time to shop the AH. is it worthwhile buying +all res gear or can i still get decent resistances if i buy the individual light/fire/etc mod but have it on almost all my items?
After we killed the Butcher I went back to the AH and dropped about 120k on new gloves, belt and amulet. I'm also rocking a Giant Skull that a buddy gave me. I'm up to 4k dps now with a 1h and shield, 4k armor and 16.9k hp. All those numbers still seem pretty low for level 53.
I grouped up with some buddies for some attempts at Whimseyshire on Hell mode. Holy crap, that place is no joke! Nightmare was too easy and dropping garbage but the champions in Hell mode were tearing us up.
